When I was a little girl, I had a red & white dress that was "twirly." You know the kind I'm talking about. I could spin in circles and it would lift gracefully up in the air. I felt Pretty. Free. Happy.
Cindy at TwirlyGirl knows just such a feeling and she strives to recreate it for little girls across the country with her Reversible Twirly Dresses and Reversible Twirly Skirts. The dresses are designed to twirl, but they're not button-y and scratch-y and lacey (fancy dresses for little girls too often fall in that category).
On the contrary, these dresses are comfortable, soft, and...made for play.
From the website: "Each dress is a work of art. Only a limited number of each version is made - empowering individuality and inspiring creativity."
Check out a few of the current designs available on her website (note: get 'em while they're hot...the designs change frequently):
I happen to know that SLY Award recipient Dayna Hadden shares my love for handmade, NON-character-driven kids clothing so she'll undoubtedly be thrilled to receive a delightful twirly girl dress for her 2 1/2 year old.
Note: All TwirlyGirl dresses and skirts are made right here in the USA.
